Through Jeanne Ballantine’s involvement in the American Sociological Association (ASA) Teaching Projects and as Director of the ASA Teaching Services Field Program (now Departmental Resources Group), she has studied the teaching process, the introductory course, and effective ways of teaching the course. She has produced written materials, contributed to the ASA introductory survey and syllabi set, conducted teaching workshops, trained and advised TA’s, directed the Teaching Information Exchange (nationwide network for sociology instructors), held elected offices including chair of the ASA Section on Teaching and Learning in Sociology (2 times), ASA Section on Sociology of Education, and chair of the ASA Teaching Committee.
Keith has not only won teaching awards, but has been honored by several sociological associations for "distinguished contributions to teaching of sociology." He has published on teaching and conducted workshops around the country. He is a member of the Departmental Resources Group of the ASA, which among other activities involves consulting work with departments of sociology on curriculum and on teaching issues. He is the author of Religion in Sociological Perspective, now in its fourth edition, and co-author a monograph on Writing in the Undergraduate Sociology Curriculum. He has served on and chaired several ASA teaching committees, has chaired the Teaching Committee of the North Central Sociological Association, and is active in the ASA Section on Teaching and Learning. For the past 18 years he has also organized and lead workshops for high school sociology teachers. Keith has taught a rather wide range of sociology courses at a two-year campus (15 years) and more recently at a very competitive small liberal arts college.
